If you are trying to get a home in this market, Joe Reichert is definately the agent you want working for you. He goes above and beyond to make sure everyone involved in the transaction from the beginning through closing are working hard as well to get your home for you. We actually bought a short sale with Joe, and he always managed to keep on top of the banks, sellers, and even our lender, so that when it came time to close there were no doubts that the purchase was to our benefit. We chose him after a friend reffered him, and having no results (a lot of frustration) for 6 months with a previous realtor, and Joe got us exactly the home we wanted at the price we were most comfortable with. We are very happily moving into the home we love.
